A few weeks ago a friend took me to the new Virgin Active club in Oxford. It is a fantastic set up, built in the middle of a school, so there is loads of parking and beautiful grounds, and the school benefits from a state of the art health club.
The day was completely free as she gave me a guest pass and it was one of the best days I have spent at a health spa, we did a class, swam, sauna-ed, played some very gentle tennis and drunk many many coffees in the Costa Coffee outlet and had a massage which cost only £30.
In the Summer this becomes 6 outdoor courts which are used by the club.
The pool was deserted and great for a relaxing swim
self tan adventure, exhibit one is a good example of the previously described grey/green tinge that I sport during the winter months..
